Has Your Loved One Been Harmed In A Nursing Home?

You place your trust in medical professionals, especially when your loved ones are vulnerable. Without a care facility or nursing home, your family's life would not function the same. Unfortunately, not every care facility takes proper care of elderly or disabled people. Elderly and disabled people need additional care beyond the basics. When that care is not provided, serious medical consequences result.

Leikin has over three decades of experience helping families whose loved ones have suffered harm or died because of negligent nursing home care.

Mr. Leikin has in-depth knowledge of how to properly examine medical records and care logs for inappropriate care and missing information. He also has extensive experience working with corporate procedures and nursing home parent companies. Call 216-230-8759 to learn more in a free consultation.

  • Bedsores or pressure ulcers caused by neglect
  • Dehydration and malnutrition
  • Fractured bones caused by falls on poorly maintained floors
  • Misdiagnosis or inattention to illness that prolongs appropriate care
  • Unexpected or sudden health problems
